There are two types of pocket milling G-codes on the Haas control:

  • Circular Pocket Milling is performed with the G12 Clockwise Circular Pocket Milling Command and the G13 Counter-Clockwise Circular Pocket Milling Command G-codes.
  • The G150 General Purpose Pocket Milling uses a subprogram to machine user-defined pocket geometries.

Make sure that the subprogram geometry is a fully closed shape. Make sure that the X-Y starting point in the G150 command is within the boundary of the fully closed shape. Failure to do so may cause Alarm 370 - Pocket Definition Error.

Be aware: Many service and repair procedures should be done only by authorized personnel. The service technicians at your Haas Factory Outlet (HFO) have the training, experience, and are certified to do these tasks safely and correctly. You should not do machine repair or service procedures unless you are qualified and knowledgeable about the processes.

Danger: Some service procedures can be dangerous or life-threatening. DO NOT attempt a procedure that you do not completely understand. Contact your Haas Factory Outlet (HFO) and schedule a service technician visit if you have any doubts about doing a procedure.
